Family of Trampled Man Sues Wal-Mart

People love to attack trial lawyers, but here’s a lawsuit that sounds worthwhile: the family of the 34-year-old temp worker who was trampled to death on “Black Friday” by a mass of ravenous bargain-hunters on Long Island has sued Wal-Mart for failing to protect him from the clamoring crowd.

The suit claims that the store’s ads for deep discounts “created an atmosphere of competition and anxiety” that led to “crowd craze,” and that Wal-Mart didn’t provide adequate security for the pre-dawn crowd, estimated at about 2000 overly eager shoppers.

“When they heard of how he was eventually killed, that he died of asphyxiation, they were visibly shaken,” said the family’s lawyer, Jordan Hecht, who filed the suit against Wal-Mart, the mall owner, manager and security firm. “They are angry because this was preventable, and have therefore exercised their right to seek justice in the court,” Hecht said in a written statement.

Jdimytai Damour, a 6-foot-5, 270 pound man from Queens, was unlocking the doors of the Valley Stream Wal-Mart at 5 a.m. last Friday when shoppers burst in and trampled right over him. It took several minutes to clear enough space around him for police to get to Damour, and police officers continued to be jostled by rushing shoppers as they tried to save the man’s life.

Damour’s was one of three shopping-related deaths reported on the day after Thanksgiving.
